A controversy has developed in the Ottawa police depart- and other departments across the country are in the same situtation. A spokesman for the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police said Thursday that Toronto and Halifax and probably other major police departments make recordings of all emergency calls and calls from their working officers. He said recording emergency calls allows police to listen to conversations again to get essential since con- versations with panicky callers are often unclear. But the wiretap which passed Parliament after pro- longed debate last year and came into effect July outlaws interception of private communications by means of an mechanical or other with some exceptions. One exception exempts a person has the consent to in- expressed or by either party of a conversa- tion. An RCMP spokesan said Thursday men of the force know that some conversations are taped and thus the force feels it has their implied permission. But officials in the Ottawa apparently after dis- cussions with the attorney-general's department in decided that written permission is required from each officer. Privacy invasion At least some of these men feel the form they are being asked to sign is an invasion of their own very thing the act was designed to prevent. The form hereby expressly consent to the inter- ception of any private communications to which I am a party while using the equipment and devices of the Ottawa force so long as I am a member of the Some officers say this would permit their personal calls to be although senior officials emphasize that is not the intent. Meryle president of the Ottawa Police has recommended that the men sign the form. He was expected to discuss the matter with others at a meeting of the Canadian Police Association now in progress in Winnipeg. The form was drawn up by the Crown attorney's office here and has the approval of the Ontario attorney-general's office. But Albert Liberal member of the Ontario legislature for Ottawa charged Thursday that the form negates the basic intents of the new law. law is designed to afford privacy and protection to people even in conversations with policemen unless the specific consent of a judge permitting a wiretap is he said. He said if Ottawa police sign the form any Ottawa resident telephoning police headquarters can have his conversation since the form provides the required permission of one of the parties in the conversation.
